On a cold, wintery night, I stopped by Bar Basso in Midtown West, for Trebbiano d'Abruzzo wine, and a second glass of Falanghina del Taburno, Frattasi. For the evening, I ordered prosciutto, the finest I've ever had, with a generous serving of gorgonzola cheese and bread. Enhancing the experience, were Stefano Longato, on vocals and cajon drum, and Andrea Longato on electric guitar. Guests sometimes sang along with American and Italian ballads. This was quite a surprise, a great experience, as Stefano's vocals and rhythms are clear, and Andrea's guitar themes and harmonies are vibrant. The two sets included the songs listed above, kindly provided by Stefano Leone. Both musicians exuded engaging personalities and charm, as they serenaded Bar Basso's guests.
